The function email.Message.as_string has an out-of-date comment:

This is a convenience method and may not generate the message exactly
as you intend because by default it mangles lines that begin with
"From ".  For more flexibility, use the flatten() method of a
Generator instance.

The functionality has changed such that "From " mangling is no longer done.
